Do you see that June hint? I did finally watch something recent from the DC Universe and checked out Suicide Squad. I'll hold thoughts, though.

Info card.

Groovy is a midnight blue base with holographic microglitters throughout.
I would use Groovy as a simple all-over eye-shadow, deepening the outer corner, or to smoke out a grey eye look.

Hail to the King, Baby is a deep grey eye-shadow with a green shimmer and holographic microglitters. 
This is a lovely grey, easy to use with a single swipe or for a deeper look. I suggest using a flat brush spritzed with some setting spray for an intense eye look. This really reminds me of what I would have worn in my emo days, I was all about some stark glitter eyeliner (and practically no other makeup).

Gimme Some Sugar is a silvery white eyeshadow with a purple sheen and blue and purple microglitters.
This is stunning as a light sweep across the lid and even more stunning as a highlight! Trust me, if you have this, put it on your cheek bones and then move around in the light!

Evil Ash is an electric green eyeshadow with flecks of green microglitters.
Honestly, I was a little frightened with this eyeshadow. This is a whole lot of pop and not one that I'm used to. It's nice for a halo eye as the light reflects nicely with this powerful green!

Swatches, including This is My Broomstick, the Mystic Matte mini included in this month's Vanishing Cabinet.

Overall, I really like this bag. The eyeshadows were all amazing individually, but it did miss the mark a bit on tying all of them together for one look. The Mystic Matte was a nice addition but I found it a bit streaky, meaning a bit more work had to be used to make it work as well as I would have hoped.

As always, let me know what you thought of this bag in the comments!
